English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
English term or phrase:markup
The entire sentence is:
"A discussion of document markup is relevant to web content development because markup is a critical competent of the authoring process."
I am unclear what a proper German translation for the terms "markup" (as in markup language) and "authoring" is. "Markup" apparently refers to HTML, however, the meaning is more general and seems to mean "markups" in general. It seems fairly obvious in English, but I can't think of a German word/term with an equal meaning. I am also totally stuck with the "accepted German standard word" for "authoring".
If someone could translate the sentence above, it would be greatly appreciated.
